Company Guidelines

You may create a company at The Expanse RP using the Company template. For a list of current companies please check our company index.

Companies are split into three types. The option of the conglomerate is unavailable for starting companies and can only be achieved through IC character development within the site as it organically grows.

  1. Sole Proprietorship: A small startup
  2. Corporation: A medium-sized company
  3. Conglomerate: A group made up of several corporations. (unavailable at creation)
Please keep a reasonable amount of locations based on the type of your company. We ask that locations where IC threads can be referenced in the article.

Operations are split into three types: Service, Merchandising, and Manufacturing. You may select one for a sole proprietorship or two for a Corporation.

  1. Service: A service type of business provides intangible products (products with no physical form). Service type firms offer professional skills, expertise, advice, and other similar products.
  2. Merchandising: This type of business buys products at wholesale price and sells the same at retail price. They are known as "buy and sell" businesses. They make a profit by selling the products at prices higher than their purchase costs.
  3. Manufacturing: A manufacturing business combines raw materials, labor, and factory overhead in its production process. The manufactured goods will then be sold to customers.
